“Totally against the spirit of James’ storytelling” – Ghost Stories of an Antiquary by MR James, Leah Moore & John Reppion

“Each story is illustrated (to varying degrees of success) by a different artist, and it’s important to stress that word – illustrated, because these are not adaptations, or if they are it’s in the loosest possible sense of the word. These are illustrated short stories. It’s a distinction that should be made because it really digs down into the major problem with this book…” – Daniel Carpenter reviews Ghost Stories of an Antiquary by MR James, Leah Moore & John Reppion
